What To Bring Abroad

  • A credit card with no international fees and/or cash to exchange into the local currency. Research ahead of time but usually it’s cheapest to exchange in your destination outside of the airport.
  • Your hotel & flight confirmation as well as confirmation for any other tours, etc. you have booked
  • Print out maps of the areas in which you’ll be and I also suggest downloading a maps app that you can use without data. Be sure to do this ahead of time as some take quite a while to download.
  • Print out phonetic instructions on how to say “Hello,” “Thank You,” and other basic phrases if you don’t speak the local language – study on the plane 🙂
